"Addiction" 2005-08-11 22:53:12 Reply

it really pisses me off when throw around the word "addicted" too much. ex: i know this girl who is incredibly naive that says shit like "OMFG LIKE IM ADDDICTED ICE CREAM LOLOL" all the time. when she says somthing like that, i want to punch her strait in the ovary. so she can not reproduce. And what about all those fuckers who say "world of warcraft is sssoooo addicting". thats the stupidest thing i ever fuckin heard, at least ice cream is a substance while WoW is a FUCKING GAME. im tired of hearing it. unless you are experencing phisical and psychological withdrawal, YOU ARE NOT ADDICTED to it. Sure you can "like it alot" but not be addicted. To all those people who think your addicted to a game, sport, or a snack food, I suggest you try some crack cocaine or oxycontin and then you will see what addiction really is.

so thats my rant for the day.

They don't actually mean theyre "addicted" to things. Its just an expression take it easy.

Best not to take things litterally man, it'll be the end of you. I fear the day when a friend says in a friendly manner "I'm gonna kill you" and you kill your friend in self defence.

BUT HE SAID HE WAS GONNA KILL ME!

Actually it is possible to become addicted to things like that... but I'm not going into it... besides, we all know we are addicted to newgrounds... other wise we wouldn't be here now

I once got addicited to Hydro Codiene. The first night after I quit I got cold sweats, I ran a fever, threw up, and shivered for hours. I know what addicition and withdraw is. And yes, it is very diferent from being addicited to a video game or ice cream.

ad·dict
tr.v. ad·dict·ed, ad·dict·ing, ad·dicts

1. To cause to become physiologically or psychologically dependent on a habit-forming substance: The thief was addicted to cocaine.
2. To occupy (oneself) with or involve (oneself) in something habitually or compulsively: The child was addicted to video games.

n. (dkt)

1. One who is addicted, as to narcotics or a compulsive activity.
2. A devoted adherent; a fan: “We are all... addicts of change” (Christopher Lasch).

See number 2 of both noun and verb. It makes sense now, doesn't it. Words can have more than one meaning.
